Abstract

The incidence of neonatal jaundice was compared in Japanese and Caucasian infants at The Roosevelt Hospital between January 1970, and August 1972. The Japanese group was found to have significantly higher neonatal jaundice of unknown etiology (57.39 per cent) than the Caucasian group (16 per cent). Twenty-three per cent of the Japanese group and none of the Caucasian group developed hype rbilirubinemia exceeding 15 mg. per I00 ml. of serum.
